Jamil Khir: New committee to study Hudud implementation soon

A central technical committee will be set up soon to study the implementation of Hudud Law in Kelantan, according to Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom.

The Minister in the Prime Minister's Department said the committee would involve the Federal Government, the Kelantan government and PAS.

Apart from studying every aspect of the implementation of the law, the committee would also explain the matter to all levels, including political parties, he told reporters after meeting with Kelantan Deputy Menteri Besar Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah here Friday.

Jamil Khir said the committee was aimed at ensuring that the implementation of the law would run smoothly, while taking into consideration the well-being and justice for Muslims, as well as articles under the Federal Constitution.

He said the Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) would function as the secretariat for the committee, while the members would not comprise politicians.

Meanwhile, Mohd Amar said the Kelantan government positively viewed the setting up of the central committee, saying that it had also set up its own state-level committee for the same purpose.

"PAS has explained its aspirations and proposals on the implementation of the law to DAP and PKR. So far, we (the state government) are satisfied with its explanation," he added.
